I found the Creative Commons newsletter interesting because of an article called “OBO Foundry Announces its First Set of Ontologies.” The short article discusses this “initiative to create a group of biological and biomedical ontologies [or categories of being] that covers a wide range of life science phenomena in a modular fashion.” In other words, the OBO Foundry, a collection of Open Biological and Biomedical Ontologies, contains a vocabulary of free reference ontologies for the scientific/biomedical domain. The CC article was interesting because it led me to the OBO site which is committed to the open sharing of biomedical ontologies information. I am always pro any open sharing of information, especially in the sciences, because of what it means for fostering collaboration and discovery. Very cool.
